ROAZZI, Antonio  and  CASTRO FILHO, José Aires de. The Development of the Concept of Time as Integration of Distance and Speed . Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2001, vol.14, n.3, pp.497-503. ISSN 0102-7972.

This study aimed at verifying how the concept of time as an integration of speed and distance emerged and developed in a sample of 46 seven to ten year-old public school children. Results were different from previous studies because even ten years-old children did not use a division rule to achieve judgements about time. These results are interpreted as due more to differences in social, cultural, and school experience than to cross-cultural differences in the development of the notion of time as integration of distance and speed.

Keywords : Concept of time; Piaget; culture; schooling.
